3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at brewery. A nice refreshing straight up Pale Ale, nicely balanced and clean finish. I suspect they use Amarillo in this one.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Italian bread and a little yellow fruit aroma. Flavor is not so hot; cardboard, light butter, dried oregano hops. This beer kinda sucks.

On cask with crystal hops at Hangar 24. Pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma is lots of citrus and a strong nutty malt character. Flavor is smoothly bitter and resinous with pine,citrus, and more nutty malt. Medium bodied with light carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Quite light golden-amber with a decent head. What little aroma there is is light and grassy. This drinks with a definitive earthy feel, musty and dirty, yet light and easy drinking. Bring on a pulled pork sam’ich. (#3886, 4/21/2010)

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery: Pours a transparent deep golden with a clingy-lacing froth of white head. Has a nice fresh grapefruity hoppy nose with some soft pale malty sweetness. Starts with good fullness and light maltiness with good fresh hop presence before a crisp resiny finish. A nice APA.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ brewery. Nose is spicy, hop-forward, but not a lot there. Flavor starts with a nice, piney hop profile, transitioning quickly to slightly toasted biscuity malt. As it warmed, the sweetness of the malts started to overtake the balance somewhat, but altogether a highly quaffable tasty brew.
